Coming off a pool play loss against the Big Green in Hanover, N.H., the Crimson executed a second half comeback in a low-scoring affair to claim its second consecutive 7s rugby Ivy League championship.
Making the relatively short trip to western Mass. to participate in the AIC Invitational at American International College, Harvard won its pool and quarterfinal matchup relatively handily before getting knocked out in the championship semifinal, 39-0, against the two-time reigning national champions.
Shutting out their first four opponents in the Harvard hosted tournament, the women's rugby team fell short in the championship match up against Quinnipiac.
After a nearly scoreless first half of play, the Crimson surrendered its lead to the Big Green late in the game and could not come back.
With its third shutout of the season, the Crimson advanced to the Ivy League Championships.
Harvard went 1-3 on the day, losing twice in pool play before being edged out by AIC in the semifinal game.
